Shogun will now require a new opponent or wait till their bout is rescheduled.

Shogun was earlier scheduled to fight Ovince St. Preux for UFC Japan, but he had to pull out through injury. It is to be noted that the veteran is on the longest win streak in the top ten and was looking to earn a title shot after this fight. Now he will have to wait or prepare for a new opponent.
